Letter to the Editor

I submitted the following 200-word Letter to the Editor in response to an editorial published in the San Diego Union-Tribune on the 4th of July.  When I lived in Omaha, Nebraska, I would regularly submit Letters to the Editor and they would often be published.  It's an easy way to get involved and have your voice heard in your local community, and I'd encourage everyone to make it a habit of submitting a Letter to the Editor to let the political and media establishment in your community know how you feel about important and controversial matters.

I was simply appalled reading the U-T editorial on July 4th entitled, “America Still Shines as Beacon of Hope.” U-T editorial writers described the millions of illegal aliens who have subverted American immigration laws and compromised the sovereignty of our nation as “immigrants in this country without documentation.” Let’s be clear: anyone who has entered this country without following the proper legal channels is by definition a criminal, i.e. they are breaking the law and should be punished to the fullest extent, including deportation. The U-T appears perfectly happy with millions of illegal invaders draining the resources of this nation, further eroding the sovereignty and ethnic makeup of the United States. The U-T also supports the hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants who are admitted into the United States as political refugees or legal permanent residents every year, often to the detriment of the American worker and taxpayer. Rather than rewarding the millions of illegal immigrants who have subverted our nation’s Constitution and sovereignty with American citizenship, U.S. immigration and law enforcement authorities should be arresting and deporting all illegal aliens, and ensuring they are not able to receive federal or state welfare or social service benefits.

  4. Excellent letter to the editor, John. Please let us know what replies to it are published in the paper. We all should follow your example.

  5. Excellant Letter to the Editor, John. The only thing I would have added is that it's (more than) high time to implement Operation Wetback II, for Mexico is where 99% of our very serious illegal immigration problem is coming from.

    I live in central New Jersey and the problem is probably just as bad as it is on the Left Coast. Virtually everywhere I go I see a meztizo (or more pureblooded Mexican Indian). And of course, there's the default pregnant meztiza which is a regular 'sight' pushing a baby carriage with two, three and sometimes more illegal alien spawn in tow.

    It is really disgusting and infuriorating, to put it mildly, to see what has happened and is being allowed to happen to MY country by treasonous and cowardly politicians at all levels of government.

    Operation Wetback

    Operation Wetback was an immigration law enforcement initiative created by Director of the Immigration and Naturalization Service Joseph Swing. The program was implemented in May of 1954 by the U.S. Attorney General Herbert Brownell, and utilized special tactics to combat the problem of illegal border crossing and residence in the United States by Mexican nationals.


    Between 1944 and 1954, "the decade of the wetback." the number of illegal aliens coming from Mexico increased by 6,000 percent. It is estimated that in 1954 before Operation Wetback got under way, more than a million workers had crossed the Rio Grande illegally. Cheap labor displaced native agricultural workers, and increased violation of labor laws and discrimination encouraged criminality, disease, and illiteracy. According to a study conducted in 1950 by the President's Commission on Migratory Labor in Texas, the Rio Grande valley cotton growers were paying approximately half of the wages paid elsewhere in Texas. In 1953 a McAllen newspaper clamored for justice in view of continuing criminal activities by "wetbacks." (Some things never change.--Phil)


    The resulting Operation Wetback, a national reaction against illegal immigration, began in Texas in mid-July 1954. Headed by the commissioner of Immigration and Naturalization Service, Gen. Joseph May Swing, the United States Border Patrol, aided by municipal, county, state, and federal authorities, as well as the military, began a quasimilitary operation of search and seizure of all illegal immigrants.


    The forces used by the government were actually relatively small, perhaps no more than 700 men, but were exaggerated by border patrol officials who hoped to scare illegal workers into flight back to Mexico.


    While the numbers of deportees remained relatively high, the illegals were transported across the border on trucks and buses. As the pace of the operation slowed, deportation by sea began on the Emancipation, which ferried "wetbacks" from Port Isabel, Texas, to Veracruz, and on other ships. Ships were a preferred mode of transport because they carried the illegal workers farther away from the border than did buses, trucks, or trains.
